BBC Worldwide Press Releases


Two Pints of Lager (And a Packet of Crisps)

Series 1 & 2 served on DVD - 18th August 2003

"They made the quartet from 'Men Behaving Badly' appear squeaky clean" - The Mirror

Starring a host of young British talent and well known faces including Ralf Little (The Royale Family), Will Mellor (Casualty), Natalie Casey (Hollyoaks) and Beverly Callard (Coronation Street), Two Pints of Lager (and a Packet of Crisps) is the booze fuelled hilarious comedy set in sunny Runcorn, about five friends who work very hard at doing very little.

In episodes such as "Fags, Shags & Kebabs", "Ugly Babies" and "Dirty Girls" the gang attempt to make sense of love, lager and living on a shoestring.

Meet Donna (Casey), a gobby pint-swilling girl with a dirty mouth and a mind to match. She's sleeping with Gaz (Mellor) who's passionate about Man City and big-breasted girls… but Donna will have to do. Jonny (Little) is the shy and retiring type, a few cans short of a six-pack but devoted to Janet (Sheridan Smith, Dark Ages), who is content picking her toes on the sofa, or talking rubbish with Donna down the girl's pub. Louise (Kathryn Drysdale) is without a special someone, but puts all her energies into finding one… provided their star signs are compatible! Finally there's Flo (Callard), Donna's acid tongued mother, who drinks for England and dishes out inappropriate advice whenever she can!

Written by 23 year old Runcorn born Susan Nickson, Two Pints of Lager (and a Packet of Crisps) is produced by Stephen McCrum and directed by Gareth Carrivick (The Vicar of Dibley, Goodness Gracious Me).
